In No. 1 doubles, Anya Dunn and Annelise Dunn teamed up to take third place, the team’s highest placing on the day. At No. 2 doubles, Emily Shepherd and Josie Holst took fourth place.

In No. 1 singles, Sara Dillon earned fourth place while Gena Michaelis took sixth at No. 2 singles. Shepherd and Holst paired up to place fourth in No. 2 doubles.
